When you've tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, and stencil at the makeup counter and your brows are still sparse, there's microblading, a more permanent fix for thin brows that promises to change your brow life. Microblading has grown steadily in popularity over the past couple of years and now everyone's mother knows about the once under-the-radar service. And with good reason: Nothing out there is as long-lasting nor natural-looking.
The face tattoo technique isn't as scary as it sounds.
Microblading is a form of tattooing
Unlike a regular tattoo, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine, hair-like strokes are drawn with the tool to mimic natural hairs in your brows. Even though it's not as deep as the regular tattoo, it's still a tattoo because pigment is implanted under the skin.
